if john kerry becomes secretary of state in massachusetts? scott brown? >> i think they have to consider that. scott brown lost. he is still a viable. the question is, who would be -- the with the democrats put up if john kerry leaves? >> he ran in an impossible state. i think elizabeth warren is going to be one of the real stars of the new democratic congress, and i can see her in national politics, at the presidential level, really soon. the other really interesting result, i thought, was that initiative in massachusetts -- it is not exactly a party issue. to have legal assisted suicide legalized in the most liberal state in the country, it failed. i think that is because doctors opposed it. >> nina. >> i want to go back to the question of the hispanic vote. i think it would go a long way if republicans did sign-ons to an immigration reform up law. it would not go all the way. the pugh center has shown that hispanics by and large are very hard workers that believe government has helped them succeed. they do not oppose government in the sort of traditionally anti- government way of some

rates? or, if you have a john kerry of the candidate, that did not perform well. >> you have news and worried all year but the implications of the republican party. -- you have mused and worried all year about the implications of the republican party. what are the implications of mitt romney and the republican party losing? >> the demographics that we have all discussed have been obvious for a long time. the proportion of whites in the national electorate of the last four presidential campaigns has gone 81%, 77%, 74%, 72%. this is not a secret. but sometimes, the of this does not become apparent until we have an election like this. but now the obvious is readily apparent to anyone, particularly in the republicans who don't have their heads in the sand. mitt romney did extremely well among whites, as you say. he won whites by a landslide and still lost the election. we not only lost hispanics by a larger proportion than john mccain, 71%-27%, we lost asians by 73% best -- 73%-27%. bob dole won asians. a lot of people don't remember that. we are in a position now where we have gone t

in the after math 6 john kerry's loss,figure that can bring it b? >> part of what we did in 2005 in the after math 6 john kerry's loss, they're going through the same question. who is the leader of the sdmic party. and part of what we did frankly between governor dean and leadership in the house and the senate, we brought governors in and mayors in and kind of said how do we as a party better communicate our values. we looked at we're losing votes among people whom they share our values. so how do we do a better job of communicating those values. and think that's the kind of tough look that the republicans really are going to have to take in terms of where they go from here and what kind of party they want to be. >> but the democrats after '88, though, they he did a lot of soul searching and along came bill clinton. >> that's true. i just think in 2005 we were in a slightly different position. >> i think there's also a mechanical issue that needs to be addressed sooner rather than later. and that is the nominating process for the gop. because you've had this exodus of independents. that needs

man problem. >> they do have that. john kerry in 2004 got only 2% of the white vote than president obama did this last election. the democrats have had a problem with white male voters. but they built a coalition because the minorities built up. but the republicans have to remember f you're running in the primary, there's a thing called google. if you say things about minority, we google it and find it. stand up to the extremist voice or be defined by them. it's your choice. >> ana, you were talking about people who had drunk the kool-aid and how disappointed they were. do you think it is -- the gop and i guess the leaders and people like karl rove, do you think that they are just that out of touch, that they don't know what's going on in america? >> no. look, we just have to take back the asylum from the inmates. and karl rove really understands the hispanic vote. he was in large part responsible and one of the architects of president bush 43 winning part of the hispanic vote which is why he won the presidency. but i agree. i saw the discussion from your two previous guests. i agr

? >> that will be an interest of a lot of people on the right to define it as a dismal failure. i think it was as dismal as john kerry. the difference between romney losing and bush winning is just the democratic shift in the country from 2004-2012. looking that where the republicans go, again and, the best way to approach this is to try to figure out how you deal with the key groups. with the help of todd akin and mourdock, you look. there are small parts. immigration and his veering onto the right and his unwillingness to have a discussion with latino voters. and then with african-american voters, all the talk about voter suppression or democrats trying to keep to increase the turnover tremendously. >> i would be really interested to hear on some of this. one, in the primary, and one in the general were a thought, "really?" in the debate with rick perry, he attacked rick perry and moved to the right of him for signing a dream act in texas. that would have been the first one. it may have worked in the primary but it had long-term consequences. the second was saying more than once he was going to get rid of pla

with her, whether or not that's over. then the other one, of course, is john kerry of massachusetts. the problem is if you pull kerry down from massachusetts, there is a guy walking around massachusetts right now who would like a senate seat, right? you could totally end up with a situation of him running again? any sense of how the president might negotiate that decision? >> no sense at all. you know, kerry has been widely known to covet this job for a long time. speaking for myself, i always thought he would make a fine secretary of state. in the old-fashioned sense of who would do a good job, this is someone i think who showed us when he was a presidential candidate in the senate, he would be a wonderful secretary of state. but you create this political problem. we've seen how one vote in the senate can make such a difference. it's hard to know how to solve it. >> the speech to the dnc felt like an audition. it looks like holder will probably leave the attorney general position, although i have great imaginings of him running like a voter suppression, voter rights thing. >> looki

dean revolutionized the use of the web. john kerry went forward on that aspect. but boy, the bush campaign had it going. in 2008, the mccain campaign was up and down. the organization after its, what they had in 2004 was lost in 2008. it had to be rebuilt by the romney campaign, but only after their able to get the republican nomination in april. it was late in part because of super pacs, which kept the process going much longer than it ever normally goes. as long as you and i have been watching this and before that, when a candidate started losing primaries, other donors close their checkbooks. you run out of money and you drop out of the race. what is happening is, they kept gingrinch going for a while. that is super pacs. the process went longer and longer. romney had to go so much further and longer -- here is a guy who is probably by nature -- when we met for him when he ran for the senate in 1994, that is where he was. non-ideological, problem-solving guy. he has to run so much longer and further to the right than he ever dreamed and in part because of the super pac effort.
